One of the best ways to see Salzburg is by taking a tour on the Salzach, the river which runs through Salzburg.
There is currently only one company offering these tours, called "Salzburg Schiff-Fahrt", who run four different types of tours for visitors.
The first, and most popular, is the standard tour of the city. This tour starts at the Makartsteg, in the dead center of Salzburg and continues down the river until the Überfuhr Footbridge.
Another popular tour takes visitors from Makartsteg to the Hellbrunn Landing, where you will be picked up by a shuttle bus, taken to the palace and after you have finished, brought back to the boat and travel back to Salzburg along the Salzach.
Both the aforementioned tours are free with the Salzburg Card. If you have purchased this, these tours are most definitely worth taking advantage of, especially when visiting Hellbrunn Palace, as the trip is much more scenic and enjoyable than just taking the bus.
Previously, boat tours on the Salzach have been difficult due to shoals in the river, although with today’s modern boats this has become less of a problem. Nonetheless, it might be the case that cruises are called off at the last minute due to less than ideal conditions.
